Thermostat Issues and How to Deal With Them
Thermostats can malfunction from time to time. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to deal with thermostat issues through a simple reset.
How to Reset Your Thermostat
There are several ways to reset your thermostat. First, determine what kind of thermostat you have. Is it programmable? Is it non-programmable? Most thermostat issues can be resolved by switching the batteries.
To reset a programmable thermostat, start by turning it off and back on. Then, open the battery compartment and remove the batteries. Reinsert the batteries so that the negative sides are lined up against the positive terminals. Leave them this way for five minutes and then switch them back to their normal position.
